Insurance is Important

Especially for people who faces a higher degree of risks at their workplace. I don’t really know whether the insurance cost is the same or different, but even if the cost is higher it would still benefit the insured person. That way if anything bad happens; at least they have an advantage over people who doesn’t have insurance.

While thinking of this, a thought crossed my minds. What about people who are already at a disadvantage, such as people with disability. Is there any way for them to have insurance? Of course they should arguably have a way to have insurance; it is only fair that way. Read the rest of this entry »

Smart Internet Connection

Smart Telecom's Logo

Right now, there are a lot of choices for internet connections in and around Jakarta. Finding the right one for your need can be quite challenging but also rewarding at the same time. So I am more than willing to help when my sister asked my opinion about internet connection solution(s) that will allow her to access the web from her notebook at home.

I remember that I still have a Nokia 6585 CDMA mobile phone that I rarely use. Back then I used the phone with StarOne as my provider to connect to the internet, and I am still subscribed to their services, even though I don’t use them anymore since I already have an unlimited internet connection at home using Firstmedia.

So being the nice brother, I decided to lend her my N6585, along with the charger and a DKU-5 data cable. I installed the driver for the data cable on her notebook, and then I installed the modem driver that will allow the phone to be used as modem in Windows. Read the rest of this entry »

None the Wiser

Birthday is usually a happy occasion for people who celebrated it. What I usually find to be a little difficult is how to pick the right present whenever close relatives is having their birthday. I usually have a hard time thinking about what to write in the birthday greeting card.

Back then I usually write to wish them a long and happy life, but although (probably) we would love to live forever, writing this to elderly person is somewhat inappropriate for me. I mean, how long do we wish them to live? Lately, I began wishing them more wisdom for each time they got older. But yesterday, a friend of mine is responding differently.

Playing Golf Sure Looks Fun!

Even though I’ve never played real golf before, I have always been fascinated with it. In my opinion golf is a sport that requires a high degree of concentration and finesse. Perhaps that is why golf is considered as an exclusive sport.

The only golf game I’ve ever played is on my computer. Although I remember once seeing a commercial ad of Tiger Woods playing golf using Nintendo Wii. That was both cool and funny and perhaps can be seen as an alternative for people who would want to get a feel on what golf was like before buying their own club set. Read the rest of this entry »

The Dangers of Alcohol Addiction

With the increase in gasoline’s price, the price of people’s basic needs such as food will inevitably increase as well to cover the increase in production cost. Surely that is going to make living even harder. I won’t be surprised if some people turn to alcohol to escape from the fact of life’s increasing pressure.

When people drink to forget, they tend to drink a lot, and when they drink a lot of alcohol for a prolonged time, eventually they’ll become addicted to it. Addiction is rarely a good thing, and we’ve read many times before how alcohol addiction is ruining many people’s lives.

Thankfully, I’ve never been addicted to alcohol, but for those people who are addicted to it, quitting or even trying to quit from alcohol addiction is not an easy feat to do. Most likely they are going to need help and a professional one at that. That’s why there are many places that offer this kind of professional help.

These kinds of places are often called a rehabilitation center, or just rehab center for short. I used to imagine a rehab center as a dark and gloomy place with a lot of rooms which walls are covered with cushions and the occupant is fitted with a restraining jacket. But as I found out the internet, my imagination cannot be more far from the reality. That is when I found Sunset Malibu’s website.

As you can see on their website, Sunset Malibu is a place where they offer alcohol rehab for people with alcohol addiction. Beside alcohol rehab, they also offer drug rehab, addiction treatment, detox and substance abuse treatment. And they have a very beautiful place I almost mistook them for a holiday villa.
